Crafty Projects!

Well some people on facebook are trying to stress me out. They have put up their Christmas decorations and even started their Christmas Shopping. A couple people have even started counting down. Now because of all this madness. I've found myself doing Christmas projects with the girls. The problem is that I normally don't start anything until after Thanksgiving. I have my turkey then I start to think about Christmas.

The projects I've done are pretty fun and family friendly. We either do them together or the girls pick out the designs.

One of the easiest things we've done is make refrigerator magnets. I went to M's and bought little round magnets. We then glued them to different embellishments. The girls had a blast and we ran out of magnets in a matter of minutes. My favorites are the ones we glued to Sassafrass felties. These magnets will make great little Xmas presents for family members (except that apple is staying on my fridge).

Also we've been doing some chemical glass etching. I'm so in love with this technique. It's so easy and fun. There are tons of tutorials online.

Lastly here's a little project I made for Lexi. She's getting this for Xmas. :) I just hope she likes it.
I hope you all can get crafty soon. Also, have a fabulous Thanksgiving! :)

Really...since June!

Really has it been that long since I've made a blog post. Geez let me blow the dust off.

Well we've had a super busy summer and fall. I've barely had time to scrap or think. I've been working full time since July 1st and coaching cheerleading this year. Let me tell ya...coaching is like a second job! I love it though...I love be able to do an activity with my kids. I think it's important to be active in their matter how silly I look. LOL

Sunday was the first day in a very long time I had NO plans. I didn't HAVE to go was a fabulous experience. So I stayed home and I scrapped. I blew the dust off my desk and I went to work. Here's what I did:

I did the All-Stars layout for a challenge on ScrapJazz. It was a recipe challenge. Use a stamp, letter stickers and only cardstock. No pattern paper.

I hope that you all have been well! I'll be back soon..because someone sent me mojo. :)

I played this weekend!

I played with paper this weekend. I received my first Scarlet Lime kit and it was filled with yummy-ness. I couldn't wait to scrap with it. I played with it Saturday while waiting for hubs to come home from work. I have a lot of paper and embellishment left to work with because I bought 2 different kits.

I did these two LOs from a prize kit I won a long time ago. These bright papers fit with the girls at the moment. This LO I did for Sketchy Thursday. I just adore their sketches.

Tonight Lexi had her dance recital. She was gorgeous on the stage. I couldn't wait to get home and get these pictures edited and up. Yep..she was a bride. They danced to Going to the Chapel. I had to get a pic of her and her daddy together. I can just see the same picture in 20 or 30 years when she actually gets married.

*I can't wait to scrap these.*

Have a great day!!

Whew....this weekend is over

What a crazy weekend we had around here. We were busy busy busy.

Friday: shopping for a friend's children' birthday party
Saturday: work, soccer, birthday party, baking
Sunday: bake sale, soccer picnic

After this crazy weekend, I managed to find time and *energy* to scrap tonight.

I've been wanting to do this one about Lexi for a while. I listed all her favorites. I'm sure some of it will be different next week, but as of right now her favorites are correct. I used this weeks sketch from Scrapbook Challenges.

I did this one for Sketchy Thursday. I really liked how it turned out. I played with my glimmer mist to make the circles. I *think* I need to get some more colors. :)

I hope you all have a fabulous day!

a little scrappiness

I love working or being back in the work force, but it's a lot harder to find time to scrap. So since I'm working 29 hours or so a week, I've decided to treat my self to a new scrapbook kit! I joined the Scarlet Lime kit club! I can't wait until I get it in the mail around the 10th. :D

Here's a couple LO I've done recently.

I did the top one for this week's Sketchy Thursday. I used pictures from this winter and some eyelets I bought forever ago. The girls were like, "what's all that banging Mommy?"

I did this one for sketch 200 on Scrapbook Challenges. I used pictures from the first time Lexi met Mrs. West. She really going to miss her during the summer.
I hope you are having a great scrappy weekend!!

Sketchy Thursday!

I'm loving the sketches over at Sketchy Thursday! It's helping me scrap some of my many photos that are laying around.

For this week's sketch I bust out Lexi's 6th birthday party pictures. I just felt inspired by them. Plus Lexi loves when I make layouts about her.

On a side note, a Big Lots near where I live had the Cuttlebug folders. I got a few tonight and I cut those circles, on the above layout, with a new die. Gigi and Lexi had a blast breaking in all the new folders and dies. I was very entertained watching them cut paper and rolling them through the cuttlebug.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my stuff! See ya soon!

Wow it's been a long time!

Sorry I've been such a bad blogger. We've been super busy, plus I had ZERO mojo.

I'm now a working mom...whoo hoo! I'm glad to be back at work. Both girls are in school, so the timing was perfect. Right now I'm working part time, but that's like 30 hrs a week! I definitely couldn't say no! The girls are settling well,to me working again.

I'm also an official soccer mom, both girls are playing this spring. They are loving every second of it! I love that they love it! Lexi is a scoring machine. I think she's scored in almost every game. Gigi is the smallest on her team, but she plays as hard as she can. I just wish the weather was better. They have played in rain and sleet for a couple weekends!

Pretty soon I'll be posting pics of Lexi's dance recital costume. I'm going to do a photo shoot real soon! She's going to be so adorable on the stage!

On to some recent scrappiness, I finally found some mojo this evening! I'm really excited that I made two Layouts tonight.

This one I made with the Scrapbook Challenges sketch 198. It's of my nephew's birthday party last year.

This one is for Sketchy Thursday. I finally started cutting into my Sassafrass Lass papers. I just love their colors.

Thank you for visiting! Hopefully I'll be back soon!

Hello Mojo-Mojo

I've scrapped the past couple nights and it's been lovely!

Tonight I got to scrap with my new toy. I just bought a Cricut Expressions. It's so nice being able to cut big circles, with out having to pull out a plate and tracing it. I sold my baby bug to get this one. Lexi kissed "crickie" goodbye yesterday, but she already loves the new one. It's amazing how a new toy can spark some mojo!

For this layout, I used a sketch from Scrapbook Challenges. These sketches are fabulous!

This layout I used a sketch from Let's Scrap and I'm double dipping it for Scrap the Girls. I love this picture of Lexi. She was dancing her heart out before her first dance class.

We haven't been doing to much lately, because of all the snow. Plus we become hermits in the winter. The girls start soccer next month and hopefully we can go play at the park soon. But for now, playing the Wii will keep them busy and active.

We are expecting more snow tonight and tomorrow. Hopefully we won't get to much. I hope you getting lots of sunshine and warmth. :D

Love and Hugs!

Snow, Snow, Snow

It has snowed so much that taking pictures of it is depressing! As I type this it's snowing, again. I'm thinking spring...anyone else??

The girls have been home a lot lately. They haven't been to school since last Tuesday. We been trying to keep them entertained. We've played a lot of wii and made candies and just hung out. It's been a great break for them, but they miss their friends and they are ready to go back to school.

I haven't scrapped to much lately, but I've done one new layout and I hope to do more this week. I think the scrappy bug has bit me. I even have a few things in my cart at 2peas. :D

Here's the last LO I made, I used a sketch from Scrapbook Challenges. I used my favorite October Afternoon papers.

Here's the Valentines the girls made, we were snowed in and couldn't go out and buy the box sets. They had fun making these. I think they are cuter than the boxed cards.

I hope you all have a great scrappy week!! :D

New Year...New Layouts

I hope everyone is keeping up with their resolutions. For me...I've done wii fit almost everyday, I haven't been scrap shopping and I haven't lost patiences with my mother (but I haven't called her eek).

We've been getting a lot of snow lately, so we really haven't done much but play games. The girls and I are getting better at Mario. We are on World 2. Lexi plays by living in the bubble. Gigi tries really hard but runs into evil mushrooms a lot. We all get frustrated and stop.

Lexi lost her first baby tooth. She's so happy, she felt kind of left out all her friends and her sissy all lost some baby teeth. Now she has the cutest gap in her mouth. :D

I scrapped a little last night while waiting for Tony to get home from work. Instead of watching Hoarders, I figured I do my part and use my stash. See it's not hoarding if I use it, right???

I used a January Sketch from Scrapbook Challenges. I think it turned out fairly cute. I used some of my Sassafrass and MS glitter.

This one is another Halloween LO! I just used cardstock, I couldn't find any pattern paper that I wanted to use.

I hope every stays warm and enjoys their sunshine!
Love and Hugs!
